Read the passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.

Washington was the first city in history to be created solely for the purpose of governance. Following the Revolution, members of Congress had hotly debated the question of a permanent home for themselves and for those departments - the Treasury, the Patent Office and so on - which even the sketchiest of central governments would feel obliged to establish. In 1790, largely in order to put an end to congressional bickering, George Washington was charged with selecting a site for the newly designated federal district. Not much to anyone’s surprise but to the disappointment of many he chose a tract of land on the banks of the Potomac River, a few miles upstream from his beloved plantation Mount Vernon.

The District of Columbia was taken a part from Virginia and a part from Maryland. At the time it was laid out, its hundred square miles consisted of gently rolling hills, some under cultivation and the rest heavily wooded, with a number of creeks and much swampy land along the Potomac. There is now a section of Washington that is commonly referred to as Foggy Bottom; that section bore the same nickname a hundred and eighty years ago.

Two ports cities, Alexandria and Georgetown, flourished within sight of the new capital and gave it access by ship to the most important cities of the infant nation - Charleston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Newport, Salem and Portsmouth - and also to the far-off ports of England and the Continent.

What is the main topic of the passage?
  • The founding of Washington, D.C
  • The government of the federal district
  • The first years of the United States Congress
  • The role of George Washinton in the America Revolution

  • Congress did not find it necessary to have a home for themselves.
  • George Washington's choice was a disappointment to many people.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the following questions.

Have you ever entered a tropical rainforest? It’s a special, dark place completely different from anywhere else. A rainforest is a place where the trees grow very tall. Millions of kinds of animals, insects, and plants live in the rainforest. It is hot and humid in a rainforest. It rains a lot, but sometimes you don't know it's raining. The trees grow so closely together that rain doesn't always reach the ground.

Rainforests make up only a small part of the Earth's surface, about six percent. They are found in tropical parts of the world. The largest rainforest in the world is the Amazon in South America. The Amazon covers 1.2 billion acres, or almost five million square kilometers. The second largest rainforest is in Western Africa. There are also rainforests in Central America, Southeast Asia, Northeastern Australia, and the Pacific Islands.

Rainforests provide us with many things. In fact, the Amazon Rainforest is called the "lungs of our planet" because it produces twenty percent of the world's oxygen. One fifth of the world's fresh water is also found in the Amazon Rainforest. Furthermore, one half of the world's species of animals, plants, and insects live in the Earth's rainforests. Eighty percent of the food we eat first grew in the rainforest. For example, pineapples, bananas, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, chocolate, coffee, and sugar, all came from rainforests. Twenty-five percent of the drugs we take when we are sick are made of plants that grow only in rainforests. Some of these drugs are even used to fight and cure cancer. With all the good things we get from rainforests, it's surprising to find that we are destroying our rainforests. In fact, 1.5 acres, or 6,000 square meters, of rainforest disappear every second. The forests are being cut down to make fields for cows, to harvest the plants, and to clear land for farms. Along with losing countless valuable species, the destruction of rainforests creates many problems worldwide. Destruction of rainforests results in more pollution, less rain, and less oxygen for the world.

What is the passage mainly about?

  • Where rainforest are located
  • Kinds of forests
  • Facts about rainforests
  • How much oxygen rainforests make

The word "where" in paragraph 1 refers to ______.

  • the planet
  • a rainforest
  • Western Africa
  • the Amazon

According to the passage, rainforests provide human all of the following EXCEPT______.

  • oxygen
  • drugs used to fight and cure cancer
  • fresh water
  • lung problems

Where would you find the largest rainforest in the world?

  • Western Africa
  • Southeast Asia
  • in South America
  • Northeastern Australia

  • cool
  • moist
  • dehydrated
  • dry

The word “harvest” in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to _______.

  • destroy
  • reduce
  • create
  • gather

What is the most likely reason why the author is surprised that we are destroying rainforest?

  • It will be too difficult to grow food without them.
  • They are necessary for the fight against cancer.
  • It will be too expensive to replant them.
  • They are necessary for the health of our planet.

If you can roll a ball, you can play bowls. Everyone can play: young and old, men and women, the fit and the not so fit. It is the outdoor game that really is a sport for all. What other sports can grandparents play on equal terms with their grandchildren? What other game is so simple that you could take up it today and be in the national championship tomorrow? 

Simple? Perhaps that is not the right word. There are bowls players in their thousands who will tell you that, bowls is a game that anyone can pick up in five minutes, it takes a lifetime to master it. They are the people who have developed a passionate interest in the game. However, for outsiders, bowls is another word, and a strange and puzzling one. They see a bowl game in action and wonder what is going on. 

What the players are trying to do is easy to explain. Their aim is to roll their bowls, called wood, as near as possible the little white ball, called the jack. If one of your bowls finishes nearer to the jack than your opponent's, you score one point and he or she scores nothing. If you have the two nearest, you score two, and so on. The skill involved in rolling a bowl weighs around 2 kilos across about 40 meters so that it stops only a very short distance from the target is just as impressive as the skills required in other sports.
